How can I explain my criminal charge on my job application? Posted on August 17, 2011

I applied at the state prison and got an interview. On the application it asked if I had been charged with a first degree misdemeanor or felony. I didnt think the charge was first degree, I thought it was second. I feel like they are going to think I lied on the application. How can I explain this? The charge was contributing because my sister stole something from wal mart and I took the blame for part of it, not thinking of the consequences. She feared our mother, but now I am paying for it.
